Podiatry and Boot Fitting?
The ski-loving podiatrist
If you’re looking for ski boot fitting, you need Steve, our highly-qualified podiatrist and a passionate skier who has honed his skills working seasons in both New Zealand and Japan.
When Steve qualified as a podiatrist, he decided to spend time working as a boot fitter, helping passionate skiers enjoy their favourite activity in comfort and helping them overcome those aches and pains that can making skiing and boarding tiresome.
A personal service
As a podiatrist Steve knows that no two feet are the same, which is why he really takes the time with each customer to ensure he understands how they ski and what they need from their boot. His dedication means he’s also on hand for tweaks and changes as needed.
Both skiing and boarding rely on lower limb mechanics for movement, so it is so important your boot is supportive, it can’t be too spacious or cause pressure points. And as all skiers and boarders know, being comfortable in your boot not only affects your enjoyment but your technique too.
As Steve says: “Anatomy, foot posture and biomechanics all affect how you turn, carve and get down that mountain. It is critical that feet are positioned in the boot as ultimately this will affect your performance.”
Fitted on insurance
At The Foot Hub, you can use your insurance for appointments and everything from cushioning and mouldable liners and full footbeds for your ski or snowboard boots.
With Steve’s expertise, you can rest assured you’ll have your boots completely customised through your insurance.
